Suddenly, we appeared back in the vat with Ybrik and Iwata-san looking on. The green liquid was now gone.
Iwata-san said that he thought it had worked so he emptied the liquid away. I told him it hadn't. Well, not as expected anyway.
I explained that he had managed to send us back to 30 minutes earlier and about 20 feet over there. He said it was because he was old and out of practice. His magic wasn't strong enough to send us back to our own land anymore.
He suggested we looked elsewhere for a way home, as he couldn't help us.
We thanked him and Ybrik very much for their help and sandwiches and we made our way back down the mountain. It was at this point I wondered why we hadn't come in the helicopter.
